Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath we have a picture of Transformers Combiner Wars Deluxe Groove in package. This image comes from weibo user TFCLUB. Don't get too excited, because this could just be an image related to yesterday's Toys'R'Us Taiwan Groove promo. What's interesting here is that the package is using the Combiner Wars logo and is multilingual.
Fellow staffer WilliamJames88 sent a quick update of a few renders of CW Deluxe Groove in. These are via Facebook user TFND.
So, what do you think? Is this a tell-tale sign of a wider release? Sound off in the discussion below.

Fellow Seibertronian Decepticon Sunstorm found a post online from TF Fan Chainclaw which relates to images of unrevealed toys he saw. He gives a detailed list of his thoughts on them below but here is the breakdown. Remember of course, that since this is all unrevealed items, take this with a grain of salt, as we do when we usually get rumours of this kind. Not only that these are subject to a persons point of view, but there have been many occurences of Hasbro not releasing a product that was being developed. Now onto the latest rumours of toys that might come out at the tail end of 2016 or in 2017:
Headmaster Laser Prime which looks to be inspired by both Star Convoy and G2 Prime.
Headmaster Triplechanger Megatron which can turn into a jet and a tank. Will probably be used for Blitzwing.
Getaway as a repaint of Chromedome.
Headmaster Triggerhappy (his G1 toy was a Targetmaster).
Headmaster Hot Rod
Headmaster Triplechanger Alpha Trion (while we have seen the art for this toy, Chainclaw did expand on the vehiclemode looking like Vector Prime's).
Tidal Wave which may share the mold with Broadside. Probably a triple changer and thus a voyager headmaster.
Decepticon Clones made up of components looking like the Predaking ones. For example there was a Horri-Bull which could double as Tantrum.
Legends Sharkticon (Gnaw)
Legends Reflector (Shockwave redeco)
SDCC Fort Max comes with Red Sword. This was already hinted at in a previous leak which mentioned an exclusive sword.
Here is the detailed breakdown with extra descriptions and thoughts on what Chainclaw saw:
Chainclaw wrote:An anonymous friend of mine showed me a bunch of stuff on his computer last night that Hasbro is working on. A couple things were just concept art, or those packets they show investors. But the majority was actual toys. Anyways, he said I could talk about it online, as long as I didn't mention him by name.
So that said, it would be great to have some images, to represent what I saw when I'm talking to people. So I have a series of requests that are spoilers of what's coming later in 2016 and 2017. So anyone not wanting to know shouldn't read past this point. Cool?
Okay, I saw a Headmaster Star Convoy / Laser Prime from G2. It pretty much looks like Star Convoy, except that star-ish shaped yellow thing on his chest looks blockier, like a letter T. And his shoulders are very Laser Prime, sticking up high, with two circle things on the front of each one. In truck mode he's long nosed, but red. Not black with red flames.
Just as Sentinel Prime was obviously Astrotrain, Headmaster Megatron is obviously Blitzwing, but with a Megatron head. You can see his tank turret on his back, and jet fins on his ankles. He comes with two guns which merge to form his big cannon that can plug into his arm. Megatron's head looks very G1 in head mode. In "Nebulon" mode it has a red torso, and grey limbs.
Chromedome's getting repainted as Getaway. Head looks G1.
Triggerhappy is a headmaster who looks very G1.
Hot Rod is a headmaster who looks G1 in vehicle mode. Robot mode looks vaguely IDW to me. Small waste. Long thinghs. Big hexagonal kneepads with vents in them.
Alpha Trion's a triple changer. Beast Mode is a wolf with a unicorn horn (I have no idea why). Jet mode looks very Vector Prime.
Weirdwolf looks good. Very G1.
Powermaster Prime is getting a Diaclone repaint, so it's a blue COE truck. They seem to be calling it Magnus Prime or something along those lines (I can't remember for sure). Odd, since it's not white.
Tidal Wave seems to be coming back (investor art, photoshopped, rough). Looks like it'll share a mold with Broadside. Vehicle mode seems to be USS Flagg homage. Part of "strength series". Tidal Wave's head is called Powerhouse. Grey body. Green limbs.
Decepticon Clones. Looked to me like they have a Predaking. And the D-clones were Predaking parts. Same with Horri-Bull.
Sharkticon looks very round and G1.
Technobots look like you'd expect. But Afterburner is weird. Instead of making him G1, or just an orange Takara Groove, he's got this really long warped/bent windshield. It looks awkward to me. But that was my only complaint from everything I saw.
SDCC Fort Max comes with red sword. Has blue hands, instead of white.
That's all I can remember right now. Anyways, very excited. Would love to have any of these done up, just for the sake of chatting with friends about it on FB, etc.
After the US, with Chicago in particular, and China, it appears that Transformers will also come to the UK. According to a number of sources, including Screen Daily, Michael Bay and Paramount might be set to head to the UK for their casting and part of the shooting of the next instalment in the live-action movie series for the Transformers. Read more here and below!
a franchise first UK shoot could bring with it significant benefits in the shape of the UK tax credit should the production hit the minimum spend threshold.
Iceland also offers an enticing incentive for inward investment productions.
Some UK studio work on the film is a possibility, but the production is not yet booked into one of the major facilities, according to sources.
Paramount has its sights set on a summer shoot for the Michael Bay-directed film, having already announced a US release date of June 23, 2017.
The studio may also be lining up repeat visits to the UK, according to sources, with additional Transformers films due to be released in 2018 - a Bumblebee spinoff - and 2019.
Just when you thought you had had enough of those half-images teasing upcoming toys, we now have another one! Courtesy of our typical source zmultiplier on weibo we now have the bottom half (yes, not the left or right half) of what appears to be Titans Return Brainstorm! This is anticipated to be a brand new deluxe class figure, different from his Generations version, and rumor has it that this mold is to be an extensive retool of our old friend Blurr. What do you make of this new image? Sound off in the comments section below and as always stay tuned for even more news regarding the Transformers.
Comic artist Matt Frank, a regular on the Godzilla series from IDW, and who worked on the highly popular Spotlight: Trailcutter a while back, has just shared a teaser image on his DeviantArt page. The image, mirrored below, shows four vaguely scientifically accurate dino-silhouettes, the tag 'Coming Soon' -- and is titled New Dino Transformers preview! Now, this could easily be part of the upcoming Till All Are One series, with beast planet Eukaris showing up again, or something entirely different. Check it out, and let speculations run wild below.
Fellow Seibertronian philswitch engage has alerted us to a Bloomberg Business article reporting a possible merger of Hasbro and Mattel.
There has been reports in the past of a Hasbro / Mattel deal and details of this potential merger are scarce.
Here are the highlights of the Bloomberg Article:
Hasbro's and Mattel's stocks are on the rise with Hasbro leading the charge. Hasbro is projected to have a strong year with the release of a new Star Wars movie. Both companies are facing fierce competition from fellow toy manufacturer LEGO.
What do you think of this possible merger? Is it a good or bad thing for our favorite hobby? Hit the jump and sound off in the discussion below.

Fellow Seibertronians, courtesy of fellow user Mindmaster, via zmultiplier on Weibo, we get our first look at the upcoming Titans Return Alpha Trion, although it has already been teased, this is our first clear look at what appears to be half of the box art for the upcoming Voyager Class Alpha Trion figure. Alpha Trion can be seen sporting a lion head as a pauldron, which would seem to confirm that he does at least have a lion mode.
So what do you think of this new version of Alpha Trion? Remember to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
As we had heard in a recent interview, the next Paramount/Michael Bay Transformers live-action feature will see a 2017 release date - but thanks to My Entertainment World and fellow Seibertronian Survivefan23, we have confirmation of the beginning of the works (though not a definite location other than the Chicago stories): May 2016. Do you think there is enough time to make it all work? Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
Title: Transformers 5
Category: Feature Film
Genre: Action / Adventure / Sci-Fi
Shoot Date: May, 2016
Fellow Seibertronians, hot on the heels of the Meet the Autobots video - which featured clips from Transformers RID Season2 - we get our first teaser trailer for season 2. Although, it can only be watched on YouTube, we also get an interesting post on Kirk Van Wormer's Twitter account that seems to simultaneously announce and confirm a season 4 of RID, despite there being no news of a season 3 at this point - we have screencapped the message below, in case of changes from on high.
Are you excited for season 2 of RID? Even more so for another 2 after that? Check out the trailer, and leave your thoughts on this announcement in the comments below.
Hasbro may not have shown up at the UK Toy Fair last weekend, but the EU section has its presence at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany - and with that come their press releases about upcoming products on the European market (which have already been seen elsewhere).
